Astronauts Life Depends On...A Computer? Yikes!

Just read where astronaut Stephen Bowen was stranded on a small platform at the end of the 58-foot robotic arm yesterday outside the International Space Station. Computer problem, they said. He spent more than a half-hour waiting while holding a luckily weightless 800 pound broken pump. Now, I don't care how many times man has been in space and doing space walks, it must be frightening to know your life depends upon "a computer."

Do you suppose those computers get viruses?
